In the two holy mosques in Mecca and Medina, the Saudi Arabian government has appointed 34 women to leadership positions.
The General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Mosques has stated that the appointments are intended to enhance visitor services at the two holy mosques.
According to the statement, the move “is part of the qualitative changes the Kingdom seeks for qualified Saudi women to serve female visitors to the two holy mosques.”
Two women were appointed by Saudi Arabia as assistants to the head of the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques in August 2021.
According to the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Transportation, 32 women have been appointed to the Haramain Express Train Leaders Program.
As part of its recent efforts to empower women, the oil-rich kingdom has allowed women to drive and enlist in the armed forces.
